I stay in Marriott properties pretty regularly. Room was clean and comfortable. Check-in was efficient. Desk staff was very good. Wifi was pretty bad during my three day business stay -- not acceptable for a business traveler. This is a pricey area, so this average Courtyard seemed overpriced especially for parking your own car. I didn't try the on-site food...

We stayed 4 nights as we were visiting our son at BU. The room was reasonably big and clean as is to be expected at the Marriott.They also have Smart TVs. The big disappointment was the breakfast - the only option was Grab and Go and it was quite pathetic. We went to the Starbucks round the corner each day....

The hotel is in a residential area away from the city centre, a trip to town or anywhere will either involve a taxi ride or a good walk. Boston is a lovely city to visit but is very expensive, as was this hotel, which was nice but standard. If we visit again it may be our standards that have to...

I used this hotel for a single night and ordered room with breakfast. The room was good but the breakfast is among one of the most uninteresting I have tried. Take the room at the hotel and the breakfast elsewhere.

Stayed for one night. We always try to stay at a Marriott and this was no different. We were checking out a few things in Cambridge. Sandra checked us in, and was so pleasant and helpful. Since our stay was very short we did not experience anything around the area, but our room was ready for three, we had enough...

Stayed here for a week on a business trip. The hotel was recently renovated and thus, everything is moderately new/updated. The hotel itself is in a convenient location geographically being right on Memorial Drive making getting anywhere reasonably easy with taxis/Uber or if you have your own car. Public transportation in the form of access to the Boston subway (referred...

If you enjoy a terrible night's sleep and waking in the morning with crippling back and neck pain, then this is the hotel for you! We asked them to change the mattress and they said that they would flip the mattress, which still made it just as bouncy and collapsed on either side. The pillows are rock hard and the...

Typically, our beds and pillows are very comfortable. If you could contact me directly, I would like to get further details. Thank you again for...

I expect comfortable beds, decent Bistro food, and good service. The bed was quite uncomfortable, and the bistro was crowded with warmed-over food that was not good. This hotel is in a great location, and the staff was friendly. But, the conversion from whatever it was before was not done well. Good views from the higher floors, but the space...

Have stayed here a few times for business travel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good large hotel rooms and very clean. About a mile walk to Harvard Square and in a nice quiet neighbourhood with views right on the river. Breakfast offers could improve though.
